    Please bring your campsite reservation confirmation with you (electronic or print). Your campsite reservation confirmation acts as your campsite permit.

    Check in is at 1:00 pm.

    All parks will be operating on auto-check-in, which means you do not need to stop at the park office to check-in. You can proceed directly to your campsite.

    Wood and Ice

    Limited hours of availability please check posted times at the park.

    At full serve parks, wood and ice purchases can be made at the park office using credit, debit, or cash.  

    To purchase wood and ice at self registration parks, use the payment envelope (cash only) at the Registration Kiosk and deposit it in the Drop Box. 

    Dump Stations

    Check out

    Checkout for all parks is 1:00 pm. Please ensure your campsite is clean.

    Changing your reservation details:

    At full service parks If you would like to make a change to your reservation after you have arrived, please stop at the Park Office. Park Offices prefer to provide service to campers using the drive-up window where possible. Public access to Park Offices will be limited to allow one visitor inside at a time.

    At self registration parks, if you need to make a change to an existing reservation, please use your own mobile device (phone or tablet) to access the reservation service by phone or online. Access your online account or call 1 888 544 3434. 

    There is a $7.00 fee for changing your reservation.

    Cancelling your reservation:

    If you cancel before 1pm on the date of the reservation you are given a full refund (minus the booking fee and cancellation fee).

    You can cancel your reservation by logging into your online account or calling 1 888 544 3434  
    There is a $7.00 fee for cancelling your reservation, and the $9.00 reservation fee paid when you originally booked is non-refundable.

    The reservation call centre is available between 9 am – 11 pm. The online reservation service is available 24/7.

    Group camping is not currently available due to COVID-19 safety measures at provincial parks

    We consider the following when reviewing group applications: availability of the group area, size of the group, ability of the site to handle the group’s camping equipment, vehicle parking, potential use conflicts with other groups, and any problems encountered during previous visits. Restrictions may be placed on the number of people or cars allowed on a group campsite.
    The consumption of alcohol or cannabis is not permitted in designated group camping areas.
